Nancy Drew Culprits

Okay, so I reviewed the list of culprits in the Nancy Drew series.  The only culprits who made a direct attempt on Nancy's life are in Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake, Alibi in Ashes and Treasure in the Royal Tower.  All the other culprits only attack her during the endgame sequence.

Here's something that may interest you.  It's a comprehensive list of how the different culprits attempt to attack or kill Nancy, during the endgame sequences.  When I say the culprit "escapes", I'm indicating that there is a "chase after the escaping culprit" sequence.
  • Secrets Can Kill: The culprit shoots Nancy.
  • Stay Tuned for Danger: The culprit chokes her.
  • Message in a Haunted Mansion: The culprit knocks her unconscious.
  • Treasure in the Royal Tower: The culprit uses pepper spray on Nancy, then escapes.
  • The Final Scene: The culprit leaves Nancy trapped in a building that is going to explode.
  • Secret of the Scarlet Hand: The culprit locks Nancy inside a monolith with little oxygen.
  • Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake: The culprit attacks Nancy with a dog bone.
  • The Haunted Carousel: The culprit chokes Nancy.
  • Danger on Deception Island: The culprit chokes Nancy.
  • Secret of Shadow Ranch: The culprit captures Nancy.
  • Curse of Blackmoor Manor: The culprit attempts to rob Nancy of the treasure.
  • Secret of the Old Clock: The culprit escapes from Nancy.
  • Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon: The culprit traps Nancy inside an abandoned mine.
  • Danger by Design: The culprit uses martial arts to beat Nancy to death.
  • Creature of Kapu Cave: The culprit escapes.
  • White Wolf of Icicle Creek: The culprit tries to blow her up with a bomb, then the culprit escapes.
  • Legend of the Crystal Skull: The culprit locks Nancy in a tomb, then escapes.
  • Phantom of Venice: The culprit locks Nancy in a room that is slowly filling with water, then escapes.
  • Haunting of Castle Malloy: The culprit throws Nancy in a dungeon.
  • Ransom of the Seven Ships: The culprit throws Nancy in a dungeon.
  • Warnings at Waverly Academy: The culprit leaves Nancy inside a booby-trapped dungeon.
  • Trail of the Twister: The culprit knocks Nancy unconscious when a tornado is about to hit, then the culprit escapes.
  • Shadow at the Water's Edge: The culprit escapes.
  • The Captive Curse: The culprit traps Nancy in a dungeon, and when Nancy escapes, the culprit attacks her violently.
  • Alibi in Ashes: The culprit locks Nancy inside treacherous tunnels.
So according to my calculations, Nancy should stay away from dungeons, because she tends to get trapped inside them. She also gets blown up or choked to death with some frequency.

What about Secrets Can Kill Remastered? That has a different culprit, and a clobbering death at the end. :P

P.S., I love it when your blogs are about Nancy Drew, because that's one computer game series I'm interested in. :D

So let me see here, Nancy who can figure out countless mind-boggling logic puzzles, can never avoid tipping off the criminal in the process, & so risks her life every time.
...That seems like flawed logic or is it just me that thinks so?

Nancy is either the luckiest or unluckiest person in the world.

@anonymous and izzy he already uploaded parts 1 and 2. sheesh.

Moriah said...

Wow she gets choked , and knocked unconcious a lot she better be careful in what she says or does that's for sure lol.

Sammy said...

Actually Michael there are quite a few more games where Nancy almost gets killed by the culprit before the end- in secrets can kill Nancy gets locked in the boiler room, in the haunted carousel she gets trapped in the path of an oncoming rollercoaster and has a puffer fish thing almost dropped on her. In the secret of shadow ranch she gets locked inside an abandoned jail cell to rot. in the white wolf of icicle creek the culprt blows up the ice lake and takes Nancys jacket so she'll freeze to death, and in shadow at the waters edge she is pushed into the spring to drown. You missed quite a few games!

Hadley said...

@Sammy he's talking about the END of the game,when you meet the culprit.

Wow, Nancy gets choked and blown up a lot. My advice is that she should stay away from people with strong hands who carry explosives on their person.

@anonymous at nov 2 6:07, lol your right! if i was nancy i would stay in a dark room all day long in case some person from an older case came back for revenge! =P

Sammy said...

@Hadley no, in the first paragraph he says 'all the other culprits only atack her during the endgame sequence' when actually quite a few of them tried to kill her before the endgame as well. Michael does get things wrong sometimes you know.

Hadley said...

@sammy sorry.

TravillaGirl1 said...

XD Michael, you made me laugh!!! Yes, Nancy should stay away from dungeons... MWAHAHA! Evil dungeons.

I thought that in Final Scene the culprit could attack Nancy if she doesn't try to stop him/her.
